Addressing the virtually held meeting, Ambassador Kien highly appreciated the recent cooperation results between Vietnam and the IAEA in the development and application of nuclear technology for peaceful purposes.

He said the IAEA has supported Vietnam in successfully implementing cooperation projects within the framework of the technical cooperation programme for 2020-2021 as well as other nuclear technology transfer activities.

The Ambassador thanked the IAEA for providing Vietnam with equipment and biological products and organizing training courses on nuclear technology application to perform RT-PCR tests, helping the country diagnose and detect the SARS-CoV-2 virus early, contributing to slow the spread of the COVID-19 outbreak.

He appreciated the IAEA developing five cooperation projects with Vietnam within the technical cooperation framework for 2022-2023, focusing on disease response, cancer treatment, sustainable agriculture development, safety & security promotion, and response to nuclear incidents.

 

Vietnam commits to actively coordinate with the IAEA in implementing these projects, Ambassador Kien assured.

The IAEA Board of Governors consists of 35 members, of which 22 are elected by the IAEA General Assembly for a two-year term. In September 2021, Vietnam was unanimously elected by IAEA member countries to the IAEA BoG for the 2021-2023 term.
